Sounds arising from abnormalities of or abnormal communications between blood vessels in the neck or cranial cavity may result in objective tinnitus. It is audible to patient and examiner alike. Contrary to the usual subjective tinnitus of non‐vascular origin, it is low pitched and pulsatile in character. That tinnitus which arises from and within the internal jugular vein is particularly important, as it may be loud enough to interfere with sleep, and result in some loss of hearing. Diagnosis… 
Venous Hum Tinnitus
This work describes two cases of venous hum tinnitus treated by ligation of the jugular vein and indicates angiography is indicated to rule out other anomalies and establish patency of the contralateral jugul vein.

A Case of Pulsatile Tinnitus with High Jugular Bulb Treated by Ligation of Internal Jugular Vein

Pulsatile Tinnitus Cured by Mastoidectomy
The case of a patient with a right venous pulsatile tinnitus and a history of 5 years of ineffective medical and surgical treatments is presented: a computed tomographic scan showed filled mastoid cells, and mastoidectomy was performed instead, and theTinnitus disappeared immediately after surgery and has not recurred during a 2-year follow-up.
Unilateral Hypoplasia of Venous System of Brain; A Contraindication to the Ligation of Internal Jugular Vein in the Treatment of Venous Pulsatile Tinnitus
In the planning of any surgical method having a major interference with the venous blood flow of the brain, the surgeon should make necessary measures to insure an adequate contralateral venous system.
